My Best Bargain Find

My bargain find was at a yard sale.  It is not a treasure but I am pleased with it....

The bed and chest both were a $25 total!

The bedspread, which I let get very wrinkled, was $2.

We wanted my sons waterbed drained and not risk a water leak.  We found a bargain to put in his room for when he visits....

Now if I could just get him to go through his old stuff that he has not touched in years....he left it here!

I am linking with Lisa at Two Bears Farm today

Now that is what I call a great find! They are both beautiful pieces of furniture!! What a bargain!! And the bedspread is nice looking too:)

Yard sales certainly are great places to find treasures! Your finds are proof of that!

Hi Kim, You were certainly in the right place at the right time. Those are lovely hardwood floors and I can understand you not wanting a waterbed in there. Good for you on such a great and useful find.

Your a smart shopper with a great eye for a bargain!

I bet everyone has something in their house that was left behind, we have so many things in the basement that hasn't seen the light of day in years!

What wonderful finds! The little chest looks hand carved, and looks a bit like burled wood!

Nicole said...

What a great find!! Love both of them and such great prices.

Have a great weekend!!

Fantastic! Chests of drawers around here are scarce. And so are decent bed frames. Great find!

SueAnn said...

Great deals for sure!!! Yes it is always so amazing how much stuff they can leave when they "move out"!! Ha!
Good luck
Hugs
